I NEARLY GAVE UP AND WANTED TO DIE WHEN I WAS SENTENCED- GEE MANN

Ghanaian pop star, turned Man of God, Gee Mann has hinted that he nearly gave up on life when he was sentenced to death by hanging.

According to him, he wished that God will kill him at a point in his life at the Nsawam Prisons.

In 1995, Geeman shot and killed a taxi driver at Dome in Accra – following a disagreement over the taxi fare.

The taxi driver had been hired by Nadia, a female friend and actress of Jagger Pee. According to Nadia, the agreed price was 3,000 cedis (now 3p). But the taxi driver insisted it was 4,000 cedis (now 4p).

Later the taxi driver came back to collect a patch of sand from a spot where Geeman was standing, supposedly for black magic purposes. Geeman got angry, ran to his room and brought out a pistol and shot the taxi driver – after giving a warning shot.


Jagger Pee, who was present during the confrontation, was alleged to have held the taxi driver from running away.

After the court trial, Jaggar Pee received a life sentence, and Geeman was sentenced to death for murder.


Geeman started his jail sentence in January of 1995. He received a presidential pardon from the then outgoing President, John Agyekum Kufuor, on 9th January 2009.

Speaking on Tête-à-tête on Asempa fm, Nana KwasiAgyemang as he is originally called said that he used to travel around the world, sleep in five star hotels, fly on private jets, had white bodyguards and drove expensive vehicles at the peak of his carrier before the unfortunate incident happened.

He continued that after he was jailed, life became so difficult for him because the life in prison was a direct contrast of how he used to live.

The ‘Hi-Life in G’ Major’ hit maker revealed that he shared a small room of about twelve inches with five other inmates at the prisons and had to live in such a congested room for fourteen years, a situation he described as unpalatable.

He mentioned that one time prayed to God to kill him because he could not endure the trauma he was going through, but he sought solace in the bible and was helped him to survive.
